Realism in fiction… the standard bearer in crime writing, Patricia Cornwell, takes it to an entirely different level. If her character needs to fly a helicopter, Patricia learns to fly a helicopter (which she does regularly these days.) She is back with Flesh and Blood, the latest featuring her wildly popular forensic investigator Kay Scarpetta. Patricia will be in Seattle on November 14th at the University Temple at 7 PM.
